EVH Member Protect is a new service that provides EVH members with legal advice and representation in relation to all employment tribunal claims – from the very first call from ACAS to tell you there is a possible claim, to the end of the final tribunal hearing.

This is delivered by a local, highly regarded specialist employment lawyer leading a team of dedicated solicitors and support staff to provide the service. The key features and benefits of EVH Member Protect are:

•    High quality legal advice and representation – no call centres. EVH Member Protect is delivered and led by Paul McMahon, whom many EVH members will know is one of Scotland’s most highly regarded employment law specialists.

•    All advice and representation in defending employment tribunal claims is covered, from pre-claim ACAS conciliation to all case preparation and management, up to and including representation at the employment tribunal hearing.

•    All types of employment tribunal claims are covered with the only requirement being that there are reasonable prospects of defending the claim - no exceptions, no ‘small print’ exclusions.

•    All of the legal fees for the advice and representation in defending employment tribunal claims is covered – there are no excesses or other hidden costs.

•    Members are covered for claims whether or not they took formal advice from a solicitor or EVH on internal HR matters beforehand – there is no need to ‘jump through hoops’ taking formal legal advice from insurer-nominated solicitors on internal HR matters, so often required by insurers.

•    There is a seamless link for members between input provided by the EVH HR team and the legal advice and representation under the EVH Member Protect service for employment tribunal claims.

•    Cost - best value. The cost to members is covered by one moderate annual fee (from as little as £750 to £1,950 per year for most members). We are confident that is significantly lower than members would have to pay to arrange this service on an individual basis.
